POLL: 70 Percent Of Coloradans Support Legal Recognition Of Same-Sex Couples

A new Survey USA poll shows that 70 percent of Coloradans support legal recognition for same-sex couples. A 36 percent plurality supports marriage equality while another 32 percent prefer civil unions, with only 27 percent opposing any legal recognition. Unfortunately, the survey did not force a choice between marriage equality and no recognition, so it’s unclear how many Coloradans would rally behind the freedom to marry. Still, the poll is another clear mandate that the state should support its same-sex families.
